A Wish Not So Cliche

Hi there.  This is going to be short and sweet.  Ya know when you are watching something like Miss Universe, and they ask the world changing questions to see who will win?  Invariably, the question “What is your greatest wish?” is amongst the top.  Many times the answer is, “World Peace.” At that point in … Continue reading

In my experience, violence is either a learned or innate behavior.  People are either born violent or raised in a violent … Continue reading

And the Season Turns – What’s Your Favorite Season?

Even though the calendar told us it was spring a couple of weeks ago (well, for those of us in the northern hemisphere, anyhow), Mother Nature didn’t grace us with Spring-like weather until this past weekend.  I was able to open my windows and let the damp, cool breeze permeate my home and listen to … Continue reading

People Who Live in Glass Houses (with a rant at the end)

It’s that special time of week when I let Blunt Life Coach™ take the reigns and answer your well-conceived questions.  Or horribly abnormal questions.  Even though he’s made a couple of appearances in the last week, including giving my eulogy, the questions don’t get answered without him.

Daily Prompt: Polite Company

“It’s never a good idea to discuss religion or politics with people you don’t really know.” Agree or disagree? It’s been a while since a participated in the Daily Prompt.  Although I’m sure you’ve all had withdrawals, I commend you for your perseverance for, uh, persevering through those tough times.  But I’m back, and I’m here … Continue reading

Parenting Fail

I’ve used this here space to address parenting fails many times before, but never my own.  *gasp*  Twindaddy, you have failed as a parent?  Well, not entirely, but nobody’s perfect.
